I am an Assistant Professor at the department of Computer Science in the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science at University of Denver. My research lab - Security and Privacy Research in New-Age Technology (SPRINT) focuses on computer security, privacy, education, human-computer interaction, social computing, accessibility, and sustainability of new-age technologies.
I received Ph.D. from Indiana University Bloomington under the supervision of Dr. L. Jean Camp. My dissertation focused on understanding users' risk mental models to help in secure decision-making for authentication technologies. I have also worked on projects related to social media privacy, privacy policies, the economics of security, IoT device security, electronic waste security, the security of AR/VR/MR devices, and others.
I completed Masters in Security Informatics from Indiana University Bloomington, Masters in Computer Applications from Jadavpur University, Bachelors in Computer Applications from The Heritage Academy. Previously, I have worked as a Security and Software Engineer for American Express, Infosys Technologies, and HCL Technologies.
My work has been published in several top-tier academic venues, including CHI, FC, SOUPS, etc. I have also presented at several security conferences, including BlackHat, RSA, BSides, Enigma, and others. These works have also received media coverage in CNET, The Register, VentureBeat, PC Magazine, Iron Geek, and other venues.
I love photography and have a knack for Digital Sketches and Art (Check it out!).
